I think all would agree that it is absolutely 100% necessary to get
permission in writing. The last thing you want is an end to your
career before it even beigns. As for templates, I don't recall any
offhand, but if you search the archives of this list online I know
there have been discussions on this subject recently.

That's my .02 cents....

Hey, I'm working as an IT intern in a doctors office and I got
permission to do a little pen-testing on their servers on my own time.
How necessary would it be to get written permission before I take any
action?  The Admin/CTO is a pretty good friend and I doubt would even
consider taking any legal action if anything happened.

If I do need a contract or something could someone point me in the
direction of a template.  I have never even seen such a
contract/agreement before and I would never be able to write one up on
my own properly.

Thanks,
Chris Benedict
